house democratic leader nancy pelosi. pelosi says she will announce later this morning whether she will stay on as minority leader after the democrats failed to within enough seats last week to take back control of the house. >>> also there are new questions right now about the political future of democrat jesse jackson jr. who easily won re-election to his illinois house seat last week. jackston has left the mayo clinic for the second time. no word yet on where he is headed or what he might head back to work. he has been on leaf since june for treatment of bipolar disorder. >> the governor of the state saying it is time for him to speak. >>> on the heels of veterans day, boost of monthly benefit checks for vets next year. increases payments 1.7% for 4 million veterans and survivors. the measure headed to the president was held up for weeks because of objections from a republican send nor whose i dent team was not revealed. >> no paycheck quite big enough for what the guys have done. >>> other news this morning, two snow boarders stranded on a mountain since sun day are boek ho --
as opposed to the senate, do you hear anything nancy pelosi is going to have a news conference, a press conference, later today? what do you think she's going to do? any word? >> i have no idea. no idea. >> thank you for your honesty. go get me a cup of coffee. >> did you watch this program yesterday? debbie wassermann schultz said she's staying. most of the people i talk to say she's staying. i think her body language yesterday when she was sparring with the press a little bit suggest she's staying. and if we're wrong, i won't be here tomorrow. >> let's go back to congressman ryan and his comments. the interesting thing that president obama did yesterday, he's been, you know, criticized -- was criticized a lot from a lot of different angles in the first four years of his time in office. but one of the things that the left and some in the center criticized him for was constantly negotiating against himself, that he was not a tactical negotiator. yesterday was as much as anything an announcement. he's not going to get the tax increases that he wants. that number. but he's not coming in -
's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support raising tax rates. >> period. >> yeah, i've been saying that my entire career. >> the fiscal cliff. i mean, there are people -- you read them, you hear them, say, you know, let us go off the fiscal cliff. that might be one way to really resolve the situation. what happens if we go off the fiscal cliff? what is the fiscal cliff? >> well -- >> i can't even balance a checking account. what is it? >> it's actually more like 2 1/2 cliffs because
then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these idea that we talked about i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we are going to have to make sure it works for the next two years. that means, i think, both parties have to talk to each other. >> reporter: diane sawyer asked speaker boehner if you are now the de facto leader of the republican party. and his answer was, oh, i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy wonk. >> i take that as a great compliment from john. >> reporter: is that your role in the republican party, the house policy wonk? >> i have also been one of the house policy wonks. my role is to continue to be a champion of ideas, to help our party be a reform party that shows how we get economic growth. >> reporter: i asked ryan about speculation that he would be an early front-runner for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. he told me it is way too early to even think about the next presidential race. jonathan karl, abc ne
question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
nancy pelosi welcomed newly elected democrats to the house. they will be figuring out office assignments, learning house rules and ethics and how to set up congressional offices. the rookies in the house are at a dinner this evening. hosted by the speaker of the house, john boehner. shep? >> shepard: mike emanuel live on capitol hill. just in to fox news from the o really file? the chief operating officer of the long island power authority or lipa is stepping down in the wake of super storm sandy. this comes on the same day an attorney filed a lawsuit against lipa claiming negligence in the aftermath. and the attorney is seeking class action status potentially including hundreds of thousands of long island customers who, in some cases have had no power for two weeks. the feds say only about 25,000 customers in the storm zone are still in the dark only. certainly a major improvement since just yesterday when the number was three times that. but today as the new york city mayor michael bloomberg pointed out that figure does not include tens of thousands of homes and businesses that are des
don't, because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. >> david, do you buy that? democrats gain in both the house and the senate. the president won the popular vote, well over 300 electoral votes and by big majorities, they told exit pollsters they agree with the president's position on tax policy. >> well, whether the president has a mandate is a matter of opinion. whether he has power is a matter of fact. this president now has enormous power, because of the expiring of all these various tax measures and because of the advent of the sequester. he's in a situation where he's in a doomsday contest with the republicans, but the doomsday bites republican constituencies harder than those of democrats and of course, the president doesn't have to face re-election so even if doomsday arrives he has less to fear from it than the republicans do. so he's in a very powerful position. and republicans are going to have to be very savvy about how they play this. to go back to your original question, about why -- what was the cause of the defeat, we'
the numbers that nancy pelosi needs to become speaker again. and that's going to happen if the republicans keep thinking like mitt romney. >> you know, that's the question, ashley, and that is as you see the demographic changes, younger voters tend to be more liberal. a lot of hispanic people moving into the country having a lot of kids and voting and being citizens, becoming a part of a political process more than ever and you have african-american voters, an african-american president but there are other factors that have led hem to the democratic party potentially. you see a lot of potential for the democratic party to grow. then the other party says you're all bought, it seems to me that would just sort of fortify the democratic tendencies of the people we've been talking about here. >> well, it's unclear what wing of the republican party mitt romney, you know, is going to be representing going forward, and i think that's one of the reasons -- >> the mayor says he's out of business. i'm not sure he has a future. >> that's why it's easy for the republicans to come out and criticize him
